I have a Dell Inspiron 530. I just recently starting to use the SD reader. It worked fine, now when I put the card in the green light doesn't turn on and the screen doesn't pop up to view it. I did get a message that says I didn't eject the card correctly before I stopped working. I was trying to find out what driver went with it try and reload it. Any ideas how to figure out issue?

Thanks!

Give this a try> Put the card in the reader and reboot the computer. Does the card now show up?

Putting the card in and rebooting was a no go, and yes the card works in other computers at least.

I also just put in a CF card and computer made the device found noise briefly and the green light came on briefly, but now it doesnt do anything just like the SD.

I'd suspect a faulty card reader.

You could try uninstalling the USB controllers and rebooting. You could also try updating/reinstalling the system or USB drivers.

And the USB's are working but I don't they are part of the card reader.
